The British Isles are a group of 5,000 islands off the northwest coast of continental Europe that include the islands of Great Britain and Ireland. The United Kingdom is made up of a union of the following: England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. Ireland is its own sovereign nation.
English is the of?cial language of the British Isles, however several regional languages are also spoken, including: Scots, Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Irish, and Cornish. Galway is one such city in which you may hear Irish. Many of the city signs are bilingually written in both Irish and English, and Irish language television and radio are becoming more and more common. Galway is a very walkable city of cobblestone streets, where it's easy to find a traditional pub and listen to live Irish folk music.
Dublin, as the capital of Ireland, boasts a more international and bustling atmosphere than Galway. Even still, Dublin often feels like a small town with a big heart. The city is also becoming a cultural center of Europe, and economic prosperity has attracted people from across the globe. Young people have flocked to the city, and half of the population of “Dubs” is under 30 years old. Despite the city's newfound multiculturalism, you'll still find the quintessential Irish experience you're seeking.
Edinburgh is a quirky mix of historic meets modern. Life is booming here in Scotland, which means you'll walk along cobblestone streets and gaze upon cutting-edge, modern architecture. You'll step into a wifi hotspot with the Edinburgh Castle as your backdrop. The city is also making waves for its commitment to "green" and sustainable practices. You'll never be far from Edinburgh's expansive parks and craggy cliffs, where you can take in amazing views, have a picnic, or just relax and enjoy the great outdoors. Centrally located in one of the most beautiful countries in Europe, Edinburgh is easily accessible, with air, train, and bus travel close at hand.
